About COVID-19 PCR test near me

The RT-PCR test is a polymerase chain reaction type of NAAT test (or Nucleic Acid Amplification Test). It can detect RNA from the SARS-COV-2 virus that causes COVID-19.
This is different from the 15-minute rapid antigen test and the COVID-19 antibody test. Those check for antigens and antibodies against the spike protein of the virus respectively.

Other services offered: antibody tests

Aside from rapid COVID tests, we also offer antibody tests, whether you have an insurance plan or not. If you test positive, it does not mean that the virus is currently present in your body.
Instead, it means that you may have gotten infected before but your immune system was able to develop antibodies to fight it off.
To learn more about antibody tests, you can visit the Department of Health website. To get tested, contact us to schedule an appointment.

FAQ

Who should get tested for COVID-19?

You should get tested for COVID-19 if:

  • you have COVID-19 symptoms
  • you have been exposed to or been in close contact with a person who you know or suspect is infected with COVID-19
  • close contact means within six feet for 15 minutes or more
  • the COVID Alert NY app informs you that you’ve been exposed to the virus from close contact.
  • you need to be screened for workplaces, schools, or events
  • you are planning to travel or arriving from travel
  • you are advised to get tested by a healthcare professional or a public health official

How long should I wait to take a COVID-19 test after exposure to a known or suspected case?

You should not wait to take a COVID-19 test after exposure to a known or suspected case, regardless of your vaccination status. You need to get tested at least 5 days after exposure or earlier if you have COVID symptoms.

Are there any at-home tests for COVID-19?

Yes, there are at-home tests for COVID-19 that let you do the specimen collection yourself. For more accurate results from a healthcare professional, get tested at a testing center near you.

I’ve been to Nao Medical, I think, three times, and their staff is delightful. If you are in dire pain, they take you in as soon as possible, if not sooner. The offices and exam rooms are spotless. All of the medical staff is very knowledgeable, patient, and understanding. I highly recommend it.

My daughter came in with stomach pain, and your doctor was able to diagnose that she probably had appendicitis. I took her to the emergency room, and she did have to have her appendix removed. Thank you so much for your help.

My visits have been fantastic both times I’ve gone. The woman at the front desk was courteous and professional, and prompt. The nurse was excellent. Same treatment as the front desk and the smoothest phlebotomist going. The doctor was great, calm, thorough, polite, and knowledgeable. I wish he were my GP. Overall? 11 out of 10.
